    Yeah this meme that Markey has run a lazy campaign is total BS -- and I say this as someone who is a local coordinator (in Markey's hometown, Malden). We've been busting our tails for months, as have Obama and Warren volunteers all over the state. Believe me, I witnessed the last stages of the Coakley campaign. Markey's campaign is light years ahead.

    The challenge we face really is that this will be a low turnout election which makes this a heavier lift. But the April 30 primary was a low turnout affair and we crushed it. So I'm cautiously optimistic, but we have to keep pounding the pavement as you've said.

    This past weekend was horrendous weatherwise but we had surprisingly high turnout for our canvasses on Sat & Sun -- very heartening. We've just got to keep it up and GOTV the heck out of this.

    I for one am extremely thankful that Senator Warren has stepped up big time -- with fundraising emails, events, appeals to her list to sign up to volunteer. Her efforts have been a greatly appreciated infusion of energy right when we needed it.
